About us

We are a well-known (and loved) community-run kindergarten in Thornbury. The Kindergarten is an incorporation run by a committee of volunteer parents, and it is owned by the Darebin Council.

Our staff are experienced and warm, and they provide a rich, stimulating, safe and fun learning environment. We provide 15 hours per week of free kinder to three and four year olds as part of a mixed-age community-learning model.

Bush Kinder

Thornbury Kindergarten’s Bush Kinder program is supports young children through play to develop responsibility for themselves and others. It encourages early risk self-assessment strategies that will ensure that young children start to consider the impact of their actions on themselves and on others.

Out & About

Children embark on excursions into the community and experience the learning waiting to happen outside the kinder door – at local parks, at nearby schools, trips to the museum and elsewhere.  Out & About Kinder helps children develop positive, meaningful connections to people and places and helps children to see themselves as active contributors to the world.
